# LATEX SPACE BETWEEN EQUATIONS

In mathematical mode characters are spaced as if they were part of a solitary word, regardless of the actual area you insert. This write-up describes just how to insert spaces of various lengths in mathematical mode.

Spaces

The spacing depends on the command you insert, the example listed below contains a complete list of spaces and also exactly how they look like.

Operators spacing

Spacing about operators and relations in math mode are governed by particular skip lengths:

hinmuskip (by default it is equal to 3 mu)medmuskip (by default it is equal to 4 mu) hickmuskip (by default it is equal to 5 mu) For relationnal operators, such as and also =, LaTeX creates hickmuskip space. But for binary operators such as +, - and x, the medmuskip area is collection. The difference is virtually unnoticeable.

User-identified binary and relational operators

You have the right to pressure the spacing used in binary or relational operators, so you deserve to specify your own. The previous example sets a specific spacing prior to and after # by utilizing mathrel (relational) and also mathbin (binary) regulates.
